The hotel has been closed down and is no longer in operation. Some suitors have been approached to take over, but apparently without much success, since the building is being turned into condo apartments.

Great hotel for family of 4. Two boys shared king size bed in master suite with bathroom. Large suite included kitchen, living room, and 2 balconies. The views from higher floors were incredible, and the dual balconies gave us a nearly 360 view of the city. The hotel is conveniently located with easy access to sights around the city. A... More

We had no water so could not even wash in the morning before travelling to the airport. Manager claimed that it was not the hotels fault so they would not refund. Eventually, they agreed to a refund but the refund was never honoured. Running water is quite a basic amenity I would expect in any hotel. I wouldn't stay here... More

I stayed at the Esplendor for two nights. My room was a one-bedroom suite with wonderful, contemporary amenities. Was high up on the 40th floor, so the views were beautiful, night or day. My only problem was the phone never worked. While I did report the problem, it was never properly fixed. Buffet breakfast was ample.

I travel to Panama often on business and stayed at Esplendor to try something new. My experience was similar to the negative reviews shown below. My phone did not work, the room could be cleaner, and the service (while friendly) was not well trained. But I will go back to Esplendor for one reason- THE FOOD WAS FANTASTIC. A nice... More

This hotel is in the heart of the financial district. I had the smallest available room and it's about 1000 square feet. King Size Bed, 2 Baths, Nice Kitchen and Office. The gym was under renovation so the manager called and got me setup to use the club down the street. There are several great restaurants and bars just down... More

What I like most about Esplendor is the fact that rooms are big, well-equiped, luminous & offer a great panoramic view of the City. The lobby of the hotel is small but very sophisticated. Service is good compared to other hotels in Panama.

We always end our stay in Panama with a 1 or 2 night stay in Panama City because of it's close proximity to the airport. This trip we only stayed 1 night so couldn't rent a condo since most require 2 or 3 nights minimum. We also needed 2 bedrooms this trip so were thrilled to find the 2 bedroom... More

This was a nice place for a good value. A mediocre breakfast, but normal for Panama

My wife and I stayed at the hotel From May 3 - 7, 2012. To be honest we were not happy with many reasons and ill be specific. When we arrived on May 3, 2012 we realized one of the main things was that the floor in the bedroom in two areas was damaged and lifted up, Also the phone... More
